Our Rules

Perfection didn’t just happen by accident. Our exceptional success as a town comes from dedicated, hard work and rigid adherence to the rules of society. We’re not just talking about normal societal rules, either. Perfection’s leadership spent nearly two decades forming a set of guidelines for each of us that guarantees our town will continue to shine for decades to come.

Those guidelines are known as the R.U.L.E.S. Five words that work together to keep us calm, reasonable, safe and secure. Those who live in Perfection are expected to follow the R.U.L.E.S. and must pass a written and oral test on them within 90 days of establishing residence. Failing the R.U.L.E.S. test allows new residents to receive a special visit to The Facility for extended training and preparation for their retest.

Visitors are not required to follow the rules, of course. We love visitors and wouldn’t want to inconvenience them any more than necessary. But we are certainly going to like you a heck of a lot more if you do! So think carefully when you arrive.

FUN FACT: No one has ever failed the second R.U.L.E.S. test. No one! Isn’t that AMAZING?

The R. U. L. E. S. program stands for five words, each of which governs one section of the town’s ordinances:

Respect – Tolerance and proper responses when dealing with others
Understanding – Reacting only after you see things from another’s point of view
Listening – Actively working not just to hear others but to ‘hear’ them
Excellence – Always doing your best in every situation, every time
Suppression – Removing aspects antithetical to harmony

Every law in the city of Perfection falls under one (or more) of these words. It’s a simple plan that every resident learns to accept, cherish and love. We guarantee it or our name isn’t Perfection!

FUN FACT: The crime rate in Perfection has been under 1% for nearly two decades. Our last ‘crime wave’ came from employees at a carnival who appear to have been accidentally dosed with heavy drugs. No need to worry, though. They’re all incarcerated far from here!

“What happens when someone breaks the rules?” That’s the number one question for both visitors and new residents. And we agree—it’s an important thing to ask.

Those who wish to suggest a new law for the city are welcome to fill out form 108-L at City Hall and include the $8.15 fee to submit the suggestion to the R.U.L.E.S. Committee that meets on the 16th and 23rd of each month. Submissions will be considered only with recommendations from at least 4 residents included.

FUN FACT: The current number of regulations in the City Code stands at 2,342. Local legend claims that when the number of laws reaches 2,449, the city will fall under a constant darkness until the 2500th law is passed. But we all know that’s just an urban legend!
